Important Details About Cockroaches

Cockroaches are often what people think about when they think about pests and infestations. With a reputation of being nearly undefeatable, you may not have any idea what to do when you see a cockroach dart across your kitchen floor. Never fear! Birch Fumigators is here! We can help you avoid and exterminate cockroaches in your home, apartment, or business. If you have any questions about cockroach extermination, please do not hesitate to contact us! We would be happy to help.

What Do Cockroaches Look Like?

Cockroaches have long antennae and six legs, with the latter being somewhat long and spiny. They are flat on the bottom and rounded upfront, allowing them to hide in tiny cracks or fissures that touch both the top side and underside of their body. Immature cockroaches, known as nymphs, look like small, wingless versions of adult cockroaches. They are typically 1/4 to 1/2 the size of adults and have a light brown or tan color. Nymphs do not have the characteristic spiny legs of adults, and their antennae are much shorter.

Problems Caused By Cockroaches:

Cockroaches are a health hazard because they can contaminate food with their feces and saliva. They can also spread disease-causing bacteria.

What To Do If You Have A Cockroach Infestation?

1. Roaches may also be found in clean settings. It is a widespread misconception that a roach infestation only happens in unsanitary places, although it will be more likely if there is a lot more food available.
2. Cockroaches are commonly found in commercial kitchens, bakeries, and restaurants. If you have roaches in your business, it is important to take steps to get rid of them as soon as possible as they can cause health problems for both you and your customers.
3. A clean kitchen is a must. Roaches will look for humid areas with water or excessive dampness to lay their eggs. The sink in the kitchen should never be full of dishes or standing water.
4. The major aim of a roach is food waste. They can eat grease left on cooktops or particles of food that fall behind appliances or furniture.

I called Birch to have a hornets nest removed from under my overhang. Not only did they remove a very large nest with very angry wasps, but while they were explaining what they did, they noticed an ant nest on my patio that they quickly took care of!
